glad to have amy robach here and paula faris. hey, robin. how are you? 48 hours now. until that 4:00 a.m. alarm means business. robin roberts back in just two days. looking forward to it. a lot of big headlines for you this morning. gas prices up almost 50 cents a gallon in the last month alone. and we're going to have the latest on oscar pistorius. it's the fifth day in jail for the olympic hero. as he focuses on defending himself against the charges he intentionally murdered his model girlfriend. there are some explosive new details that challenge his explanation for her death. and danica patrick, the first woman to ever take the pole position for the daytona 500. so, she'll be first onto the racetrack next sunday. we'll hear from her. and all of that is just ahead. >> indeed, it is. we can only hope, however, they have a bit warmer temps
7:01 am
than i had in florida this weekend, sam champion, this frigid blast went from the northeast all the way down to central florida. >> you were not alone. and a lot of folks got another big hit of snow. two over the weekend. let's walk over to the wall. a lot of facebook and twitter pictures coming in over the weekend. that from huntersville, north carolina. just a good white covering of snow. for that outer banks area. and all the way up, kind of skipped the new york city area but really pounded from boston to hyannisport pretty heavily. a good hit of snow. this storm, in some way was almost as powerful as the blizzardmaker. boston comes in with five inches of snow. up to 10 inches of snow in some locations there. the cold air dragging in behind. 12 below in saranac lake.
7:02 am
new york city n the single digits this morning. the wind chills are brutally cold this morning. one more snowmaker we'll watch develop. north dakota on into minnesota. with the blizzard warning conditions this morning. but it's february, and every bit of it. josh? >> thank you, sam. paula faris, now, here with the top stories. everyone is wondering what in the world is going on at the pump these days. we begin with something we all need that is getting a whole lot more expensive. the experts are not sure why. of course, we're talking gasoline. a new report finds that gasoline prices have skyrocketed by 42 cents a gallon in just the last month, much of that increase in the last few days. abc's linzie janis, our newest correspondent in the house. welcome to our functional family here at abc news. >> thanks, guys. it's very good to be here. believe it or not, some drivers now are paying more than $5 a gallon for gas.
7:03 am
that's in california. in every corner of the country, prices are skyrocketing. the average price, $3.71 a gallon. that's a record for this time of year. up 13 cents in the last week. the big question is, why? analysts say it's because of rising oil prices. they're not exactly sure why the cost of oil has spiked so quickly. some are blaming rising demand overseas. others blame refinery maintenance or speculators on wall street. either way, there's no end in sight. when the warmer weather comes this spring and american families hit the road, prices could rise another 40 to 60 cents per gallon, that's a major hit for the family budget, paula. >> we don't like you to be the bearer of bad news. we're still welcoming you to the family, linzie. new health concerns for pope benedict. a german journalist who recently interviewed the pope said he appeared to be blind in one eye and had trouble hearing. his body so thin that tailors
7:04 am
had trouble fitting his clothes. he is stepping down next week. and police in chicago have arrested two people in connection with the city's latest case of senseless street violence. 18-year-old jennae mcfarland was shot in the head on the same day that her little sister sat on stage behind president obama during a speech on gun violence. police believe she was gunned down because the shooter thought she was somewhere else. and this morning, the white house is denying it leaked a draft of the president's immigration plan. a leak republicans are calling counterproductive. the draft calls for an eight-year waiting period to get a green card. the white house says that the president was not trying to undermine the compromise bill. meantime, this was about the closest that the media got to the weekend golf play of president obama and tiger woods. there was a formal protest from white house correspondents.
7:05 am
and in russia, scientists have confirmed that shards of rock found in a frozen lake are from friday's meteor hit. the meteor was traveling 46,000 miles per hour when it crashed, that's pretty quick, causing an estimated $33 million in damage. so many windows were shattered, the broken glass could cover 40 football fields. is that about 4,000 yards there? and this got plenty of attention in florida. police were swamped with reports of a fireball in the sky. look at that. but it was only part of a meteor shower. orionid? is that right? >> right. >> sam and i went back and forth. >> thank you, paula and sam. now to the news overnight of country music star mindy mccready, dead at 37. from an apparent suicide. the singer had been going through a period of real turmoil, substance abuse, rehab, and most recently the death of her boyfriend. abc's chris connelly has the
7:06 am
story now of the woman with so much lost promise. ♪ i do it all the time >> reporter: years ago, long before her portrayal of a hungover party girl would seem ironic, mindy mccready was a fresh-faced 20-year-old from florida. her "guys do it all the time" became a hit in 1996. ♪ i had some drinks with the girls guys do it all the time ♪ >> reporter: her bright promised still shined through the '90s. her debut cd went double platinum. the radiance of the smile would fade, as alcohol and drug dependency seized her life. >> there were four suicide attempts, at least three trips to rehab, several arrests. her career was derailed because her personal life was so chaotic. >> reporter: she spoke openly on "the view" in 2010.
7:07 am
>> when there would be some kind of crisis or some kind of painful thing happened to me, it was readily available to go and drink too much. >> reporter: reality tv chronicled her struggle to get clean. when she sat down with abc news late in 2011, mccready was hoping that she had turned a corner. >> i grew up in a really difficult way. i'm very proud that i've made it this far and that i understand why i've made the bad choices i've made. and how not to make them in the future. >> reporter: yet on sunday afternoon, mindy mccready was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. she leaves behind two young sons, and unsullied memories of a hopeful young singer who once dreamed of having it all. mindy mccready was 37 years old. for "good morning america," chris connelly, abc news, los angeles. >> thank you, chris.
7:08 am
we bring in dan abrams. a troubled individual here had dealt with numerous legal issues over her life. most recently, the questions around the death of her then boyfriend. what now to make about it? >> initially, that was deemed to be a suicide. and then the authorities said, wait a second, there are too many questions here, we want to continue that. i don't think this is going to change that. i think they are still going to want answers to know what happened, how it happened. this may kick it into further gear as the authorities try to get some of the questions answered. >> she also dealt with addiction for most of her adult life. her children actually put into foster care a month ago when she was placed into court-ordered rehab. so now -- what becomes of them? >> the last time we talked about this on the show, she had actually taken one of the children out of state against a court order. the question there was, how do they get her back? she eventually gave up both children when she went into this court-ordered addiction program.
7:09 am
and now, what happens to these kids. the father of the older child lost custody after he allegedly tried to kill her. so there's all sorts of family problems here. i would expect that the father of zander, the older child, will now try to get custody back. and the question is, is he going to also ask for custody of zayne, 10 months old as well? >> wow, a sad end. thanks, dan. now to the nightmare journey of the carnival cruise ship "triumph." that may be over, but the company is facing the first wave of lawsuits. passengers already filing complaints against the cruise lines. abc's gio benitez has been tracking the latest. >> this morning, two lawsuits have already been filed. and experts say more will be on the way after that ship lost power. the woman you're about to meet, lisa williams, says she was physically injured during her eight-day saga at sea.
7:10 am
>> when your gut tells you that it's possible you're not going to survive this event, that shouldn't be allowed to exist. >> reporter: in an exclusive interview, the houston resident tells abc news that she became dehydrated on the ship and spent the weekend in and out of urgent care centers getting i.v. drips. >> nobody offered me additional water. and i was not about to drink water coming out of the ship. >> reporter: her $75,000 lawsuit is the first to focus almost entirely on bodily injuries. from the so-called "cruise from hell." >> she thought this luxury cruise turned into the "titanic." it seemed that nobody was in control. and that the passengers were pretty much left in the dark. >> reporter: she says the pictures tell the story. more than 3,000 passengers forced to move their beds outside, wait hours for food, and dodge sewage they say was all over the boat. williams says the chaos left her battered and bruised. >> i wanted to go and lay in the sun. i didn't expect to come home in the situation i was in. i don't think that's fair.
7:11 am
>> reporter: so, what does the fine print say? the ticket contracts states the company is not liable for mental distress. but physical injuries are another story. carnival's reputation may be already paying a price. >> you guys think you might have it bad, but do you have it worse than 4,000 stranded on a nightmare cruise? that is about us. >> reporter: "snl" taking the company to task over the weekend. but williams is not laughing. >> my only concern is that this doesn't occur ever again. so they never have another ship that has a similar experience. >> reporter: we did reach out to carnival. we're told the company had not yet seen this latest lawsuit. much more to come. >> yeah, this is just the beginning, gio.
7:12 am
thank you. turning to the latest on the shocking story of an idaho man now facing a federal charge for allegedly slapping a toddler on an airline flight. abc's john muller spoke with the child's mother and joins us now. good morning, john. >> reporter: anyone that's ever flown knows about crying babies. it certainly takes some patience. this case boggles the mind. a mother speaking out about the stranger accused of the unthinkable, calling an innocent toddler, in pain, a horrible racial slur and then hitting him. >> jonah started crying because the plane was going down. >> reporter: a choked-up jessica bennett reliving her pain. when a passenger on the plane allegedly called her 19-month-old son, jonah, the "n" word and then slapped him. >> the guy looked at me, and said [ bleep ]. >> reporter: the fbi say this is the guy, joe hundley, now charged with assaulting a minor. it all went down just over a week ago on a delta flight from minneapolis to atlanta.
7:13 am
in row 28 of the plane. jessica and jonah had the aisle seat. hundley, the window. >> and he put his mouth into my ear and said it again. i had to push his face way from me, and i screamed. this caused a commotion with the other passengers. because they got worried and stood up and wanted to intervene. at that point is when he hit my child. >> reporter: jonah suffered cuts and bruises to his face. and while his mom says he's doing better, she says he's become mistrustful of strangers. >> he knows that a stranger hit him. he's aware of that. he's very leery of strangers now. >> reporter: this is not the first run-in with the law for hundley. who's being charged with assault. last year, he was arrested for a dui in idaho. his employer, agc aerospace and defense says he's no longer with the company. the statement doesn't specify whether he quit or was fired. dad wasn't on the plane. he said that was probably a good thing.
7:14 am
>> i can tell you, without question, had i seen anybody assault my child, that i would take physical action and incapacitate them. >> reporter: now, in court documents, a witness backs up the story saying he saw the child get hit. hundley could face a year in jail if convicted. his attorney says, hopefully the situation can be resolved. no one should rush to judgment. interesting. amy. josh. >> thank you so much. we're going to turn now to race car driver danica patrick making history when she took the pole for the daytona 500. that means she'll be first onto the track next weekend in what is known as the super bowl of racing. jeff gordon saying he was the fastest guy on the track sunday. but for once, that wasn't enough. take a look now at danica patrick, fastest of them all. what you're watching is 196.434 miles of speed and history. >> danica runs the same line. >> reporter: she cemented her
7:15 am
place on the pole and in the history books. in a sport, until now, completely dominated by men. her first-place finish in sunday qualifying now gives her the lead position at next week's 500, known as the super bowl of nascar. >> if you're going to start anywhere, especially at a big superspeedway like this, you hope it's on the front. >> reporter: she bested the speedway's best, three-time winner jeff gordon, by a narrow margin. the significance of her finish was not lost. >> it's about as much exposure as this sport could get. >> reporter: it's the same type of exposure patrick's been bringing since this 2008 indycar victory in japan. since switching to nascar full-time in 2012, she's yet to win a race. leaving some critics to say she spent her time capitalizing on
7:16 am
being racy. >> is this heaven? >> no, this is. >> reporter: instead of focusing her time on racing. >> if she were to win the race, that would silence ever critic. >> i'm going to do everything i can to prepare. for sunday's daytona 500. so i can keep the car up front as often as possible. >> reporter: based on her performance on sunday, it looks like that may be what she'll do. >> if she wins the daytona 500, she'll be instantly the most famous female athlete on earth. >> and that is what she has left to do now, win the race. >> it's a lot of pressure. >> indeed it is. jeff gordon tweeted even his 5-year-old wanted a picture with danica. there it is. danica and the gordon family. she hopes to be champion come sunday's end. a great story. >> go, danica! >> sammy, there's a lot of pink and purple cold on the board. >> let's say you were one sam champion on twitter getting

7:30 am
abc's bazi kanani is in pretoria, south africa, with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, amy. as oscar pistorius spends his fifth day in jail, officials are leaking information to the media, including new claims that he may have been using steroids. for this man, the battle has never been this tough. oscar pistorius, known as the blade runner, will no longer be running races. his agent saying sunday night all of the track star's future events have been canceled, as he focuses on defending himself against charges he murdered his girlfriend, model reeva steenkamp, on valentine's day. overnight, pistorius' father quoted as saying his countrymen are destroying a national icon. we build people up into heroes, who overcome immense challenges, only to take great glee in breaking them down. pistorius' family and friends insist he's not guilty.
7:31 am
>> no doubt, no substance for the allegations. >> reporter: his best friend telling reporters a distraught pistorius called him just before 4:00 a.m. to say there's been a terrible accident. i shot reeva. those closest to the star say he mistook her for an intruder. but new details are casting doubt on that explanation. while people refused to comment to abc news on the claims, one respected local newspaper, "the city press" reports multiple police sources say a bloody cricket bat will be a key piece of evidence, possibly used in a violent argument before the shooting. that steenkamp was wearing a nightgown and her overnight bag was found at the house. that pistorius may have first shot steenkamp in the bedroom and she went to the bathroom, where she was shot three more times through the door. these shocking new claims come just a day of a premiere of a
7:32 am
reality show, cently taped, contained a special tribute and her haunting last words recorded for the series. >> the way you grow up is so important. it can make an impact in a positive way or a negative way. i'm going to miss you all so much. i love you very, very much. >> and our thanks to bazi kanani from south africa. for more now, we're joined by "gma" analyst dan abrams. we're hearing various reports, none confirmed, about a bloody cricket bat and sealed boxes and syringes being removed from the home. >> everything we're hearing about this case, day by day, makes it worse and worse for pistorius. every detail we hear makes it harder to accept this notion that he may have thought it was an intruder and accidentally shot. so, everything from the possibility of any kind of bloody item to her being shot in the bathroom, through a wall.
7:33 am
every single detail is problematic this morning. >> and also, this morning, we're getting reports that both oscar's and reeva's ipads have been seized. what could investigators be looking for? >> the first was the how. now it's the why. they want to understand what might have happened in the house, how it happened, but why did it happen? what might have been the motivation? what might have set this off? >> and we're likely to see oscar stay behind bars, here's a bail hearing tomorrow? >> if what his family is saying is true, that wouldn't mean necessarily not guilty. possibility of manslaughter, a lesser crime. i think it's likely he'll remain in jail. >> all right, dan abrams, thanks so much. we appreciate it. now, to an exclusive interview with the woman who shocked the country when she claimed she was attacked by a stranger with acid.
7:34 am
her story took a bizarre turn when she admitted she made it all up. we want to warn you that some of the images in the report may be tough to watch. abc's abbie boudreau has her story. >> reporter: from victim. >> i could hear bubbling and sizzling, my skin. >> reporter: to villain. >> it makes me sick. >> reporter: three years ago, in vancouver, washington, 28-year-old bethany storro told police, out of nowhere, a woman threw liquid acid in her face. it turned out to be a hoax. storro did it to herself. in this exclusive interview with abc news, she's speaking out on camera for the first time. >> i made a mistake. and i hope that people forgive me. and give me a chance because i'm a good person. i promise. i am. >> reporter: she's hard of hearing. she said she had an undiagnosed case of body dysmorphic disorder. a mental illness that causes an

obsession over minor or unimagined flaws. >> i saw a monster. >> reporter: she said she turned to liquid acid to make it go away and to end her life. >> it was like fire to my face. i was so happy. i thought i found the answer. >> reporter: but she says when the pain became unbearable, she couldn't bring herself to drink the acid. >> i'm freaking out, like, this is not working. what am i going to do now? >> reporter: so she drove down the street and screamed for help. >> somebody screamed out and said, did someone do this to you? i said yes, and that's where it all began. >> reporter: she even gave police a fake description of her alleged aattacker. >> if anybody knows any information of the girl that did this to me and help find her. >> reporter: did you kind of
7:36 am
like all the attention with the cameras and microphone? >> yeah, i did. in that moment, i -- i felt like i was cared for and i mattered. >> reporter: two weeks passed before police pieced together the clues. and bethany confessed. >> and i'm so sorry to everybody. i really, truly am. >> reporter: in her new book, "facing the truth," she says she's starting to feel more comfortable in her own skin. >> ooh, it's hot. >> reporter: this is the new you. >> yes. >> reporter: this is you. now, no longer seeing the monster in the mirror. >> i'm sorry, it's hard. i'm still me. i'm still the same person, but better. you know. i'm getting better every day. >> reporter: for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> and we certainly wish her well. for more on her book, go to on yahoo! right now. time for another look at the weather. with our samuel j. champion.
